Infact I like my Cameo so much that I have given up buying any traditional dies. I do have my Cuttlebug still but I don’t even use it for embossing now. I have picked up quite a few techniques for duplicating the delicate finished look that Nestabilities give and I wanted to share some of those with you today.
But first the card:
For the summer theme, I used all summery bright colors and summer flowers for the image. Doesn’t it look all golden and summery? 🙂 Here is more info on how I made the various parts of the card.
First up, I love cards that have a lovely embossed white frame. Like Beate’s card here (and SO many of her other cards!) Since the Cameo can’t emboss, I first made the shape of my choice in the Silhouette Studio then used the offset feature to make an internal offset. Here is a screenshot of how it looks in Silhouette Studio. Click on it to view a larger image.
Here are the cutout frames. When laid one on top of another, they look very much like embossed nestabilities!
Before sticking the two together, I did the ghosting technique on the inner panel and stamped it with a flowers image.
The black cutout behind the panel is this file from the Silhouette Store. I sponged the background panel with some spiced marmalade ink before stamping on it with PTI Text Style stamps. Layered it with black cardstock as well.
I am submitting this card for:
Thanks for stopping by and hope you enjoyed the card!
